For the most part, garbage disposals are self-cleaning and virtually maintenance free. However, a malfunctioning garbage disposal can mean a messy headache, but one that can be avoided. Here are some ideas to keep your unit in good working order.

Fats and grease congeal and harden in cold water which can then be flushed through the system. Don’t use hot water when grinding because it can dissolve fats and grease, which may then accumulate in the drainline. Almost all biodegradable food waste can be fed into disposals. However, do not throw down the disposal clam or oyster shells, corn husks or other material with a high fiber content. Under no circumstances should you put glass, plastic or metal non-food materials through a disposal. This includes bottle caps, tin covers or aluminum foil-these are some of the items we commonly find in clogged or broken disposals.

Maintenance is easy. Grinding a little ice helps to clean the disposal by scraping away stubborn  deposits and getting rid of odors.
